100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

EU Industry Commissioner Antonio Tajani met with ministers in charge of industry on 19 February identifying green technologies as a strategic medium-term perspective for the industry to  improve its competitiveness. “A European strategy on Clean and Energy-Efficient Cars should be developed and implemented that sets out the necessary actions to encourage market introduction of green vehicles, including electric cars,” the Commission said in a statement, issued after the informal meeting. The communication should be published in time for a meeting of EU Competitveness Council on May 25-26, 2010.  According to EU officials the strategy will be technology neutral but will include hydrogen and biofuels. The Cars 21 initiative will be re established and focus on green car developments.
